You can laugh or cry. This song has a little of both. Another rough recording sung into the iMac built-in Mic. The picture is me as seen through the special effects of Photo Booth.

Everyone Gets Old
G Bm
Everyone gets old, there's nothing you can do
Except drink Geritol and feel mighty blue
You've got aches in places you didn't even know you had
And you wake up in the morning and you feel half dead

But everyone respects you, they always call you sir
Your cataracts get worse and everything is just a blur
They give you a discount until the day that you die
And the only thing you can do is kiss your ass goodbye

They give you a pill for every body part
One for the side effects that make you fart
Just try to remember that these are your golden years

The women love you and you think you're a success
But you look around you're the only man left
And since when is Viagra the drug of choice
You would howl at the moon but you don't have a voice

Is it legal?
Great lyrics - I can see from the songart why you're so popular with the ladies Tom. I'm sure being the only man left has nothing to do with it :)
Smile on my face - thanks,

The Elixir
Well I prefer supplements myself but I have a friend who guzzles it straight from the bottle. Then again there is another friend who likes his over ice with a splash of vodka. I think they call that an old age Russian!

My father-in-law's definition of "old" is someone 20 years older than you :-) Unfortunately he's passed on so I don't know how that rule works post mortem. Plenty of truisms in your lyrics, Tom. And plenty of humour, as well. Nice performance. Thanks.

If the pills don't get you .. the side effects will : )

I think the title should be "Golden Years."

I'll drink to that concept .. just as long as drink I'm hoisting is not a Geritol on the rocks!

My 97 year-old step-mother is always saying to me "Don't get old." I guess you give some advantages amongst the not so good aspects. Entertaining, Tom.

This one hits me where it hurts! While quite honestly there are things I LOVE about being 63, you did put your finger on a few major concerns.

Some things just need to be said though, right?

Glad you're still with us Tom!

Be well bro!
